Book 5 is done, so what have you done for me lately?

Book 5 is done and on the way to the publisher. They said it was due to the printer in October. We'll see how that works out. This book was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. I learned a lot about marine terminals and how to model in HO Scale. I am pleased with how it came out. The book includes 11 new track plans as well as a project layout with some how-to information.

Now to take a breather and then decide on what is next.

I have a few projects on the back burner for Alkem Scale Models that I want to get moving on.  The PoLA layout still needs to have the Borax factory completed.

The BNSF slab cars are on the do list. I am trying to decide the best approach to modeling it. A mostly  photo etched kit would probably be too light. I am thinking about spin casting some of the parts.  But which ones. It will be an interesting task to design and produce.

A new kit of this car is on the next project list
